Cool Blue: Day 179

Photograph of pen/colored pencil drawing

This photograph was taken directly under natural light. If you look outside my sliding door, all you see is snow. I was having a hard time trying to find good lighting to actually be able to take a decent photograph. So the picture ended up with a bit of a cool blue tone to it.

I didn’t spend too much time today working on this drawing. For tomorrow I’ll have to really figure out where I’m going next with this. Or perhaps I’ll get back to it later on tonight. No matter what I ultimately decide to do with this drawing, I should have something more interesting to post tomorrow. I’m noticing that nobody is really talking about my artwork lately, and I’m getting hardly any views, so I’m kind of going to be stubbornly confident in this particular piece of artwork and continue working hard on it until I end up with something awesome. That’s just how I work sometimes.

Alright, this will be the last question from Crystal Moody’s newsletter. I kind of answered it already, as I talked a little bit about why I started this project and what I did previously, but I’ll go into more detail and try to answer it as best I can.

What was missing from your life when you weren’t doing creative work?

First off, I look back on what I was like before doing this project and everything that’s gone with it, and I see myself as boring. I played video games and watched television shows. I either had a job or I didn’t. I had a girlfriend, or I didn’t. Blah. There was nothing special about me when I was like that. I just floated around trying to find where I fit in, trying to do what everyone else was doing, and it was like fitting a square peg into a round hole. None of that is for me, I needed to do something different. Whether I’m eventually successful at creating artwork, or doing stuff online, or any of that type of creative work, it doesn’t really matter to me. I’ll do whatever I can to set myself up for success, like creating my store on Redbubble and sharing my content online, but in the end it’s what I’m doing right now that matters.

Starting this project was the most important decision of my life and even though I may perhaps feel, at some point, that fear of failing, it’s what I’m doing at the moment that’s important to me. I’ll continue doing something creative every single day for as long as I can physically and mentally do it.
